“Blink-182 recruited My Chemical Romance to join them on the Honda Civic Tour this summer and fall. Blink are playing songs from their September 27 release, Neighborhoods, their first studio album in eight years, and guitarist-vocalist Tom DeLonge tells SPIN that he’s always wanted to go out on the road with the New Jersey rockers.
